L'Escale is a young vine Sauvignon grown on clay silt soil over limestone from several parcels. It is pressed in a pneumatic press and fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. once MLF is completed the wine is kept on the fine lees for a few months prior to bottling. It is the fresh, racy wine which is clear vibant and thirst quenching. The Chenonceaux is selected form a parcel of 85 year old vines which are planted on lighter clay with silex over tuffeau. The vines are densely planted and worked solely by hand. Fermentation is made in small, custom made stainless steel pots, where the wine is left for 11 months on the lees (some gross lees are left in the tanks) prior to bottling. It is a classic style, textured, peach infused and wild on the palate with a mineral coolness driving it forward.
